The Genitive takes no prefix or suffix, hut is placed after the governing word. Thus yoS fcw0, a tail, o]_ F<> a fish; yD 8 v\ hang p&> a fish's tail ; £[8 nm, hand, os$ mew, he, ^8 o<;$ mw man, his hand. Other prefixes and suffixes used to indicate cases are the following. A line follow- ing a word indicates a prefix. When two words are separated by a line, it indicates that the noun is placed between them ; tl - , H—nwft, to, \itk - , \uk - mat, from. "hang- - , to, for. an - , with, by means of. tang - , withs together with, Adjectives.— These do not change lor gender. They follow the nouns they qualify. Thus 0^*5 <;§ \dn nl3 a good (nZ) man Particles Indicating number or case are appended to the last word. The Comparative is formed by prefixing khen\ more, to the adjective, and adding mai or fam*8hil. Thus, — ko» §,-nai wiai \.on a-naw" khen than man this than man that more olds i.e., that man (is) older than this man. bit &n Men you l&m-shi boat which more large than that, i.e 3 a boat which is Larger than that. To form the Superlative we say * more than all ', as in Men yau lum-$Jii iang-mung, larger than all, largest. Sometimes tl is prefixed to tang-mting, as khen yau him ft tdng-nutng. The Numerals are given in the list of words. All are pronounced with the rising tone except lung, one , sM3 four ; ha, five ; shaw, twenty. The following are not in the list of words : 988 hcngt a thousand ; <^<S mm, ten thousand ; oSj^ shen> a hundred thousand. The figures are,— 0 1; J 2; 9 3; 9 -1 ; 0 3, S 6; \ 7, O 8; 6 9; 0 0. c^S ^tl%, one, is usually written ^JT. Generic words can be added to numerals, as in Ahom. Mr. Needham's grammar gives twelve common ones. We may mention oj8 Jco, used when counting human beings; oqS to, used when counting animals ; and &><$ aw (? straightforward tone), used in counting things generally. -------------------------*•-••—^•^•oaa^a»M««»m«iiB«»ii ,t. » !.•!••.•— 11 regxat that I do not know the tonfis of Men or of lum>»hi.
